Theresa,

I have not dealt with this situation personally but if I did I would try a motion-detecting, plastic predator. Something like the owl mentioned in the link below. I believe some friends of mine were successful with something like this at their home. In any case, I truly hope you and the PIWO find a way to peacefully coexist.

Does anyone know how to stop a woodpecker from hammering on my log house?

I have had my home checked for bugs.I live in a meadow close by a bay.

It is right outside my 3rd floor bedroom window and has forced me to stop feeding

the birds at my feeder off my second floor. I was told it was just breeding behavior last spring

but he/she keeps coming back, even now, if I put out seed. Besides the racket I dont want holes

in my house to invite other pests

I have been an avid birder all my life and feel he/she is being really unfair to a friend (me) HELP!

Theresa
